Unique cocktails with lots of interesting ingredients. For dinner I had a foie Gras stuffed duck breast that was great and my wife had a patty melt. When we asked who made the bread for the patty melt the bartender said they make it in house....Boom!

Food was not all that tasty. Best was the least expensive item. Great service though. We had no alcohol with our meal.

Have been to Lake Placid many times and have never ventured in. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The drinks were fun and unique, the menu was varied and I'm told updated frequently. Everything that we ordered was delicious and perfectly seasoned. The staff was efficient and pleasant. Just a great all around experience. I am definitely coming back... More

Wonderful atmosphere, with wooden beams overhead, mirror in back of the busy bar, wooden tables. Bar food with a twist: interesting cheese and meats, off beat burgers, funky entrees, good variety of alcoholic beverages.

Loved this place. Went with family for a casual dinner. Loved the extensive selection or small plates and charcuterie-- difficult to chose so many tantalizing selections. Enjoyed the chicken liver butter which is really like a chicken liver mousse. The bread served with it was fresh and a good compliment. The cod was delicious with capers and tomato sauce and...

Despite the slightly disconcerting name, we have visited Liquids and Solids a number of times over the years and I can't decide whether it's getting better or if we are just finally tuning into what a great restaurant this is! I think the latter! Our most recent visit was really special and certainly worthy of a glowing review. From the... More

Good food and an amazing beer selection. The staff were super friendly too. My only hesitation on 5 stars was that some of the dishes were a bit over ambitious and not executed well. The focaccia burger would be a prime example - good, but could be so much better, sometimes less is more. Definitely would still recommend though.

This is by far our favorite restaurant in Lake Placid. The menu is great, both for drinks and food. You have to be willing to eat different foods and combinations but there is something for everyone. The staff know the menu and know what to recommend and everything is homemade and excellent! You will not find a better way experience... More
